Stocks in this article: RVLT

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Revolution Lighting Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: RVLT), a leader in advanced LED lighting technology, announces the receipt of an additional $5 million investment from an affiliate of Aston Capital LLC. The investment will be in the form of convertible preferred stock and will be used to fund recent customer orders as well as to fund future growth.  

"I am encouraged by our progress in converting our growing sales pipeline into executable customer orders. We expect this trend to continue as we assist our customers in evaluating the significant benefits of efficient LED lighting systems," stated Robert V. LaPenta, Chairman of Revolution Lighting Technologies, Inc.

"We are on track with operational improvements that will result in a more cost effective, efficient organization that will best serve our stakeholders.  Our sales and distribution platform is well positioned to take advantage of the increased adoption the market is experiencing," said Charlie Schafer, Revolution's President and Chief Financial Officer.

The $5 million investment contemplated will be derived from the sale of a new convertible preferred stock to RVL Holdings, an entity managed by Aston Capital, LLC and controlled by Robert V. LaPenta. The preferred stock will be convertible into common stock at a price of $1.17 per share and carry a 5% annual dividend payable in cash or stock. The transaction is expected to close on February  21, 2013 and is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions which the Company anticipates will be satisfied. The Company will provide a more detailed description of the terms and conditions of the transaction in a Current Report on Form 8-K to be filed with the SEC.
